Questions on fuming

Barry Irby
WTF....frasa rasa bumbling sheesh....No wait, not that kind of fuming, the wood working fuming....

Anybody know where to get stronger ammonia? I am building an white oak console cabinet for my son and he wants it fumed. I have fumed a few things, using household ammonia but based on the size of this (7' long) and the fact he wants it as dark as possible, I think it might be better to get some stronger ammonia.

Second question. I have some pecan plywood I got at an estate sale. Labeled by the manufacturer as pecan all plies. Does anyone know if it will fume similar to white oak? It's not very pretty and I was considering using it as shelves and other internal parts.
